If you have suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault, it may be possible for you to bring a compensation claim.
Because personal injury and illness can have a dramatic and sometimes life-changing impact on the person injured, it is important that you take legal advice at an early stage from a solicitor who has the appropriate expertise and will provide you with the most informed advice.
Important to note that, apart from certain limited exceptions, a claim must be filed/legal proceedings issued within two years of the accident and in the event you do not file your claim or issue legal proceedings within that time, you will be prevented from taking your case.

We aim to secure the best possible award for your claim, while at the same time making the process as clear and straightforward for you as possible and we pride ourselves on our down-to-earth and helpful approach.

Initially, we will arrange a consultation with you to gather all relevant information to the event, and then Belgard will discuss your options with you and agree on the process best suited to you given the level of injury sustained and resulting medical needs.
